I met Stan Lynde about 20 years ago in a mall in Billings, Mt. I bought a original Rick O'Shay cartoon signed by him. I am proud of it. It hangs in our home in a special place.
Stan was a Christian man, he is in a far better place. We miss him!

When I was a little girl, in the days of Gunsmoke and Roy Rogers, I wrote to Mr. Lynde because I admired the Rick O'Shay comic strip so much. He was so very kind to write back to me, and that letter remains one of my greatest treasures. I will never forget the detailed drawings of the strip, and especially the Christmas and Easter "stories" with Hipshot. I, too, continue to try & live the simple life, and treasure its memories, especially when times get tough. RIP Mr. Lynde, thank you, and condolences to your family, friends, and fans.

The sole reason for the Chicago Tribune for me was reading Rick O'Shay! I was inspired and wanted to be a comic strip artist because of Stan. I was later in the Marines in Desert Storm and wrote to him. He wrote back and sent me some great stuff. I then got a chance to visit him in his log cabin studio near Kalispell Montana. First Class gentleman! May he rest in Peace!

I loved and grew up reading Rick O'Shay. A great and beautiful comic. Hipshot was always my favorite. So sorry for the family and their loss.

I used to read "Rick O'Shay" all the time...loved the story lines and the playful way Mr. Lynde originated his characters' names. My sympathies to the family, friends, and fellow fans of Mr. Stan Lynde.

I loved his cartoons and their rock solid messages of morals, fair treatment of your fellow man. One cartoon I recall - the gunslinger tells Rick "Christmas is the promise and Easter is the proof." God bless you Stan and thanks!

Thanks from many generations who grew reading your cartoons -

My favorite comic strip was Rick O'Shay. Mr. Lynde you gave all of us great pleasure with that strip. I have several memories from the strip. May the LORD bless those who morn your home going. Psalm 116:15, "Blessed in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints."

I remeber Stan very well when I was living in Red Lodge, Mt. Always a gentlemen. Always enjoyed Rick O Shay comic strip. We are losing a generation of cowboys and gentlemen. My thoughts and prayers to his wife and family.

When I was young my family moved to Billings from Salt Lake City. My Dad loved westerns and turned me on to the comic strip Rick O'Shay and the TV series Gunsmoke and Bonanza. Those were the good old days in the mid 60's to early 70's. My father really admired the works of Mr. Lynde. I also developed a great appreciation for his work. My family's condolences reach out to the Lynde family and you will all be in our prayers.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

It's been years since I met Stan in Kalispell, WY. He was kind enough to sign a picture of Rick and Hipshot, making me an official "Ricky". We've missed him since, and will miss him more. He's an indelible part of Montana.

Having grown up in Montana, then moving to California, I was especially proud of the expert craftsmanship Mr. Lynde displayed in his "Rick O'Shay" strip. I went to the University of Montana with his sister in 1966 who was also a cartoonist for the school's newspaper.
My condolences to Mr.Lynde's family and his sister, and he left a mighty fine legacy that made the old West and Montana proud. Rest in peace, Stan!
